Wordless Wednesday

Feature Friday

Today’s feature is a Recyclemania giveaway. Remember LIFE University is participating in this eight week long recycling competition. To help reduce waste we’re giving away a pack of compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Because a CFL lasts 6 to 10 times longer than a traditional incandescent bulb you’ll be reducing waste, and saving time and effort in replacing burnt out bulbs. To enter the giveaway respond to this post by Monday, February 13, 2012  with the phrase “I live a Sustainable LIFE.”

Recyclemania 2012

 

Once again Life University has joined millions of students across the country by making a difference and participating in the 2012 Recyclemania Tournament. Recyclemania is an 8-week recycling competition endorsed by the America College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment .

Life University will take part in the waste minimization portion of the contest, focusing on overall waste reduction. This will include an educational campaign teaching the campus community to cut waste by placing emphasis on reusing materials and source reduction.

Did you know that according to the American Union of Concerned Scientists, when travelling by bus or coach (as the team regularly does), your carbon footprint is the smallest of all transport modes?

Feature Friday

A FREE clothing swap will be held on Wednesday February 1, 2012 from 9am to 9pm at the LIFE University Treehouse. Donations of clean and folded clothes (men’s, women’s and children’s) will be accepted at the Treehouse on Sundays after 12pm until January 29, 2012. The great thing about this event is that you can donate even if you can’t shop…and shop even if you don’t donate. All clothes that don’t find a good home will be donated to Goodwill after the event. What a win, win opportunity!

Please contact Carly Swift at swifty85c@gmail.com for more details.

Did you know that the environmental footprint of our clothing is alarming. Americans throw away 68 pounds of clothes on average each year, and we only buy 10 pounds of recycled clothes annually.
